Golf Chiefs Aim To Tackle Driving Distance By Shortening Clubs

The proposals have been labelled as 'pathetic' by a multiple major winner.

New rules will give golf competitions the right to limit the length of clubs being used from next year.

Other than a putter, clubs can currently be a maximum of 48 inches - with this soon to be limited to 46 inches.

It's part of a plan to limit the distance travelled by balls in the modern game.

Six time major winner Phil Mickelson previously described the proposals as "pathetic".
